P.S. - This is about as bad as it got. OUCH!
P.S.S. - Not to offend anyone who enjoyed this show, it's all subjective, I believe that more than probably any Deadhead out there, but this is absolutely the worst Dead concert I have ever heard. I am not saying it is the worst ever, just the worst I have heard. And I have heard my share. If it does something for you, more power to ya. It doesn't do anything for me, but make me sad at how bad things had gotten at this point for all parties involved, that being the band and the crowd. To my knowledge, this is the only 1 star rating I have given to ANY GD concert (of about 300 reviews), and unfortunately, it is pretty deserved in my opinion.

very disturbed to hear the dead were starting to money grub and pulled the downloads. Now they have suddenly made an incredible "about face" - thanks to heads who frequent this site! If they have concerns maybe they should start yanking garbage like this show off and leave some of the genius from over the previous years for us to appreciate. Or, maybe they should have realized that at this point they were delivering a subpar product and not charged its'fans night in and night out. Sorry for the soap box, but for the band I love to pull this and make this website the culprit is pretty bush.

Subject: Chuck didn't Suck - the Dead did
The only things worth mentioning from the Dead's sets: the dreamy, killer version of Row Jimmy and a solid Brown Eyed Women. Black Peter was good too.
The second set ranged from awful to mediocre.
This was a simply horrible venue and it was about 100 degrees. That didn't help matters.
Subject: perfect weather
The set lists speak for themselves. They played with the sound during both of these shows so it adds to the breezy/floating quality.
Subject: Fare thee well
